Full description

Discover the beauty surrounding Rethymno as you head uphill through picturesque olive groves and make the first stop at Halevi Monastery. See the church of Panagia with its flame-shaped windows and the ruin of the monastery building, which was recently renovated. Continue to the village of Chromonastiri and visit Villa Clodio where the Military Museum is housed. As you reach the Myli Gorge, a small oasis close to the city, set out on a short hike through a gorge with diverse flora and fauna and visit the abandoned village of Myli.  Stop and relax in the Cretan village of Roussospiti and be spoiled with a selection of traditional dishes from a family run taverna. Due to the elevated location you will have a breathtaking panoramic view over Rethymno and the Mediterranean coast.

Highly recommend this e-bike tour! Michalis and Lena were very friendly and Michalis was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable and shared just the right amount/depth of interesting information. The tour was very well-paced with a mix of stops: a couple of monasteries, the military museum, a hike through the stunning Myli Gorge, a viewpoint, and lunch (which was one of the best meal experiences of my life between the beautiful view and delicious food). We don't bicycle often but the motor made the hills extremely easy and the views throughout were incredibly beautiful!

We were a group of 4 couples who are very glad we chose this Ebike excursion. The bikes were well maintained and made the steep hills easy to manage. The places we stopped were fun and interesting. The scenery was beyond beautiful and lunch was great! Michael is a well informed, charismatic guide who made the experience even more fun. We all highly recommend this exceptionally fun day!
